Andre Black Nerd Review of Proud Mary. Proud Mary Movie Review from Black Nerd Comedy. Proud Mary Review plus Black Nerd Rants on Sony Pictures not marketing or having preview/critics screenings of this movie. The movie is not the best, but definitely not the worst, and definitely has an angle with being a strong black female lead in a genre action film that could be marketable regardless of how the movie is reviewed after seeing it. Proud Mary (2018) stars Taraji P. Henson, Billy Brown, Danny Glover, Neal McDonough, Margaret Avery, and Jahi Di’allo Winston.

I feel like this movie was super good and my only thing was they could've leaned harder into the 70s theme for it like if they found like those old 70s cop show themes that would've pushed it to be really good for me, like proud Mary could've been like a atomic blonde but with 70s aesthetic. I actually appreciated some of the slow burn in the movie and I think Sony really did Taraji wrong with this movie because they pushed 2 similar movies in the commercial before this one, red sparrow and den of thieves which looked pretty boring and derivative comparatively to Proud Mary. I think Proud Mary really shines with the interpersonal moments and the fact that Taraji really gives that raw emotional edge and like a really refreshing vulnerability that most action movies don't really have. I really did love the genre blending when they focused on the kid too, it was pretty interesting stylistically

I saw it and I am just so happy they didn't treat her as eye candy ala have her show as much skin as possible.  the beginning felt similar to any other action movie where the hero is just getting ready.  It was enjoyable and made even better by comments from the audience.  And thank you for reminding us all of street fighter legend of chun li.   I completely forgot that actor was in it but you had to bring that up again. ^_^  Thank you so much for not suffering alone and sharing that tidbit with us all.  >)P  ^_^

Jaznellow says:

Definitely gonna watch this. Taraji is a queen!?

Kenneth Miller says:

wait was Chun lee or was proud mary a OK movie?

dj will says:

Must be the only film shot in a city with bad guys/girls with guns,etc and there were ZERO cops…THE ENTIRE FILM……NONE. Corny cliche'd music cues….disjointed pacing and stiff acting.

Bill Kelly says:

Your review is completely on point. The studio shouldn't have abandoned PROUD MARY. Taraji P. Henson kicks ass is all I needed, too. I was looking forward to the movie and it didn't disappoint.

Mad angel says:

Awesome review you are hilarious. Also we know why sony didn't promote it that much.

Snowdodger1 says:

Hey bro, react to the "Emoji Movie 2" trailer (a.k.a Teen Titans Go Movie)

FallClassKids says:

fights urge to give this video a thumbs down for the Legend of Chun-Li reference

Jamille Mendoza says:

She's the Black John Wick basically it's John Wick for a black audience

5:56 Looks like you were imitating Nostalgia Critic in a funny way lol

theblackryan says:

They actually advertised it alot during nba games.

AnnMarie Kerr says:

Please go see “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”

Brick Tamland says:

I just found out Taraji is Jim Henson's evil step sister.

The Unicorn says:

Yeah, I thought it was going to be terrible based on how it was being promoted. I’m glad that it isn’t terrible after all, and also glad I wasn’t wrong about why it did BECAUSE of its promotion. Sony really needs to learn consistency. But I’m glad I watched this review. It changed my perspective on preconceived notions I had for it, and now I’ll be giving it a shot in the future.

vicki s. says:

Danny Glover played a great roll

D_MAJR says:

Taraji P Henson was good in this….thats about the only good thing I can say.

Chad Sabourin says:

Proud Mary is the newest Female Action oriented film. Is it any good? Give my review a watch to find out.

elizabethashley42 says:

Proud Mary trailer played before video. ?

Pete Adams says:

I saw it, it was a pretty good movie. I wish they would have promoted because in my screening it was all Black folks and half the theater was full.

Rohan Sharma says:

Didn't release here but so didn't Get Out, any movie with black leads doesn't release here, even Girls Trip didn't release here. Chandigarh U.T tricity area in India, if anyone is interested.

Masterofvore NeX says:

Went to see the movie last night and it was pretty filled up.

I was the only white person there.
